Forensics Union Members Have Big Success at University of Central Missouri Competition

Truman’s newest Forensics competitors made their debut performances in individual events at the Missouri Mule Forensics Tournament, hosted by the University of Central Missouri. The event was divided into two separate contests, public speaking and oral presentation, Oct. 7 and 8, respectively.

In public speaking competition, Truman competitors captured five awards. Cara Hurst, a senior English major from Ballwin, Mo., earned second-place honors in persuasive speaking, third in dramatic interpretation and shared fourth-place in duo interpretation with Mike Ito, a freshman political science major from Kansas City, Mo. Matt Macari, a freshman computer science major from Peoria, Ill., placed fifth in informative speaking, while Bonnie Frisch, a freshman English major from St. Louis, earned sixth-place honors in persuasive speaking.

In oral interpretation competition, Truman students expanded their success with six additional honors. Hurst scored a third-place finish in dramatic interpretation, fourth-place in persuasive speaking and a fifth-place award in program oral interpretation. Hurst and Ito reprised their appearance in duo interpretation finals, this time finishing in second-place. Macari took sixth in informative speaking, while Cherish Varley, a freshman theatre major from St. Louis, placed fifth in poetry interpretation.
